CDA suspects embezzlement by employee

Print Article

The City of Coeur d'Alene has placed an employee in its Finance Department on administrative leave and asked the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office and Kootenai County Prosecutor to investigate the possibility that funds have been embezzled.

The city is not naming the employee now, nor does it know how much money has gone missing. But officials believe the amount is "in the thousands of dollars" and that the transactions involve wire transfers and a federal bank, which could bring the Secret Service into the investigation.

The Press will have a story in Tuesday's print editions. — Mike Patrick
